Blurb: Just a little love bite: When the monster comes out of the dark…sometimes he eats you up in every way you love.
Peter has lived with vampires for almost two decades, ever since his own parents were killed in a house fire, and he considers himself pretty knowledgeable about paranormals. Stopping for a cup of coffee in a diner, Peter finds himself turned on by the steady stare of a big Italian.
When he makes a pit-stop at the diner’s bathroom, he doesn’t expect a hook-up. That’s exactly what Peter gets…and he also learns he doesn’t know as much about paranormals as he thinks he does. His new lover, Balthazar, is a demon who is coming up on his one thousandth birthday. He kidnaps Peter, claiming him as his amina, his soul, a reward from the Gods for doing his job well for a thousand years.
Except, Balthazar’s job is sucking out the souls of the living and delivering them to Death. If Peter can get past the stigma of being bonded with a soulless demon, can Balthazar keep him safe from whoever is sending minions hell-bent on keeping them apart—not to mention Peter’s meddling vampire friends—long enough for their bond to seal?

Review: This is book five in the series A Loving Nip. This book added a different paranormal to the vampire’s series, a demon named Balthazar who claims Peter, a human, is his amina. I took that to mean amina is something similar to the term soul-mate or beloved. These two definitely did not have an easy time of getting to know one other as other demons came after them to prevent the bonding. As well as the vampires wanting to protect Peter.
I was glad to see Kontra and some of the others from A Paranormal’s Love/Kontra’s Menagerie in this book as well. It seemed there were a lot of misunderstandings about demons in general. All that was cleared up with the help of Draven. The fighting scenes were intense, I really felt for Balthazar when he felt he had no other choice but to send Peter away to protect him. It was intriguing about the way a demon bonded. Not to mention who they worked for was a shock.
Balthazar’s job had me raising my eyebrows but was pleasantly surprised at the way he went about his job. He didn’t seem so scary once I learned more about him. I loved the way he wanted to protect Peter by any means necessary. Powerful, emotional, and riveting this book had me on the edge of my seat as each scene unfolded awaiting the outcome. Looking forward to reading more in the series.
Absolutely loved it and highly recommend it to all paranormal readers.
